about

For those with fears of spiders (arachnophobia), you'll understand how I can have paranoid delusions that one day spiders could just rise up and usurp the planet in one fell swoop.

lyrics

On the ceiling right above your head
Creeping up your bedspread
And crawling through your hair
There's spiders everywhere

Spewing from the sewers come eight-legged feverish fiends
To drag down hosts and food for the ever-demanding Queens
They sneak into your homes and they snatch you from your dreams
Before you have a chance to let out a single scream
The venom from their bite renders you immobilized
The chitinous horrors then carry you in the dark where the reside
Strung in webs and meshed to walls stare dozens of vacant eyes
Their bodies filled with eggs, already met with their demise

Silken webs
Dinnerware silver
We're not guests
We're here for dinner
Cries of help will go unheard
As spiders have come to take over the earth

The clash of exoskeletons bounces off the sodden walls
As the swollen army gathers occupying all the halls
A hiss of high pitched chatter can be heard above them all
And off the spiders crawl, to heed the battle call
A massacre's the beginning of an annihilation coup
So precise in execution people had nothing they could do
Not a single word was heard or reported on the news
Human life as it once existed has vanished without a clue

Silken webs
Dinnerware silver
We're not guests
We're here for dinner
Cries of help will go unheard
As spiders have come to take over the earth

Silken webs
Dinnerware silver
We're not guests
We're here for dinner
Cries of help will go unheard
As spiders have come to take over the eaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrth
(aaaahhhh, wwwaaaaahahahahhhhhh, gaaaaaahhh)

I find it futile to try and snap out of my nihilism, so instead I distract myself with small fictions set to fast music.
